Mrs. Golda Meir, Israel’s Foreign Minister, arrived here this afternoon, after high-level discussions of Israeli problems in London and Paris, and immediately took up her duties as chairman of the Israel delegation to the United Nations.

She had been met at John F. Kennedy Airport, where she had landed, by her delegation’s permanent chairman here, Ambassador Michael Comay; Ambassador Avriel Ehud, a member of this year’s Israel delegation to the General Assembly, whose regular post is that of deputy director-general of the Israel Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem; Michael Arnon, Israel’s Consul-General in New York; Ephraim Ephraim Evron, Israel Minister in its Embassy in Washington; and other ranking Israeli diplomats here. Tomorrow morning, Mrs. Meir is scheduled to hold her first conference during this year’s Assembly with Secretary-General U Thant.
